Evolution Robotics Mint

Evolution Robotics the creator of Mint, the first competitor of the not so successful iRobot Scooba begun accepting pre-orders for the Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner. The dry and wet cloth mopping robot was first introduced at CES in Las Vegas in January, and due to its proprietary indoor navigation system it quickly found the interest of gadget fanatics. This new system allows the Mint to cover the floor area in a systematic manner, considerably cutting the time to clean smaller areas. Estimated street price of the device will be under $250, but it will not be available in retail outlets before Q4 2010. Those who preserve their robot by pre-ordering with a $20 deposit will hopefully get their devices in Q3 2010.
